Asked by Alex Lucas

What would be the best type of wood for a bathroom shower? And what type of nails or glue would I use? I want to avoid rot, mildew, etc.

Alex, is the wood in the actual shower? If so, teak is one of the most rot-resistant woods. You should be able to find a good marine glue and coated screws for decks not galvanized. The galvanized screws are too soft and can be a pain to build with. I prefer the star bit deck screws for all of my shower wall board applications.
